A Flurry of Drawings


Right now I'm reading "A Flurry of Drawings" by Hugh Kenner, about the amazing life and career of animation legend Chuck Jones. Jones is best known for his Looney Tune Masterpieces during his 60 year career span in the animation industry. Truly a lengend. So far the book has been a really entertaining but sometimes wordy exploration of the life and times of all that is Jones.

Also check out this DVD which explores the magic in the drawings.

***And by popular demand...Chuck Amuck, thanks for the recomendation Brad! I am going to look for this one in the library next.

I hope that you have already read Chuck-Amuck, and Chuck Re-ducks, by the animator himself. Really awsome insight into his life and the thoughts behind his creations.

hi brad! i just picked up this book here at the Disney library, it looked pretty interesting. i had seen the dvd extremes and inbetweens a while back but should probably pick it up again as a refresher. i haven't read those books you suggested, i will definitely look for them next time i'm in the library, thanks for the tip.
